Gallup NM area Navajo Trade Token – Howard Wilson

Howard Wilson was an Indian Trader around Gallup, NM for 54 years. He was born in Gallup and spent his life in the area. He had several trading posts including Wildcat Trading north of Gallup and Indian Village Store in Churchrock, eight miles east of Gallup. He also served as president of the United Indian Traders Association and served on the Intertribal Indian Ceremonial Association for nearly 30 years. Simultaneously with his trading, he worked for the Railroad Retirement Board and recruited Navajo workers for the Santa Fe Railroad and processed benefits for the workers. The office was in Gallup. For years, Howard was a key figure in recruiting Navajo actors and extras for the film industry. He was always a champion for the Navajos. He was also a two-term sheriff and then succeeded by his brother Bobcat. When I was in high school in the 50s, I delivered Coca-Cola to his store in Churchrock. He and my dad were good friends.
